Posted (edited)

I was torn on this so withdrew this earlier in the week, I'm now certain I want to part with it, it's also going on eBay for a few hundred quid more so I don't expect it to stick around for long. I have another bass to pay for so I will not be lowering the price. Please don't ask and don't wait around if you want it expecting me to lower the price it won't happen. 


Alembic Brown Bass from 2002 In perfect, as new condition. 

30.75" scale

Anniversary Electronics (cable provided)
In original case - again in perfect, as new condition

Set up with D'Addario 45-105 rounds 
Walnut facings with myrtle core - beautiful figuring and flame in both. The neck is 5 piece and constructed from mahogany, birch and maple - the neck is slender and great to play. The bass has a rubbed oil finish throughout
Brass and ebony string retainer - unusual and lovely feature found on the BB and only a few other early models

 plays beautifully with a low action. No paperwork (this wasn't supplied though the bass is entirely legitimate and registered with Alembic). Comes with adjustment tools, guarantee card and manual.

A new one has a pricing of around £9k
the only trade I am interested in is a non-tatty Wal 4 string so nothing else, please this is a £9000 bass 

I would like it gone this weekend, you are welcome to pay upfront and collect later if you can't make it this weekend to Brighton, or i can UPS it within the UK and europe .. and absolutely no try before your buy i dont have the time ..Thanks

      Just got this from Andertons last week wanting to try out a shortscale.
      Long story short: I love it! Makes me wonder why I never tried a Mustang and/or a shortscale before.
      Alas I'm now regretting not going for a US version from the start as I'm not really seeing any use for the added jazz pickup in the music I make
      and I'm probably gonna want to upgrade to a JMJ mustang anyway as I love the way that one sounds and looks just a tad better than this one,
      but I can't trade it in anymore as this was already an exchange for some other gear I bought, hence this feeler.
       
      I've already put a fresh set of La Bella 760FL-S Deep Talkin Bass strings on them (43£) as they come recomended as the best strings for this type of bass
      and will also include the original rounds it came with. 
       
      I still have all the original packaging (Both Fender & Andertons box) and the allen keys and other goodies it came with.
      Bass was only tested a couple of hours in my livingroom and she's less than a week old,  so it's absolutely mint!
       
      New these go for 599£, the Labella's were another 43£ and the Mustang PJ in this colour is currently sold out in most places,
      so grab yourself a bargain and get this brand new bass for 100£ less. 
       
      Only trades I'm interested in is a JMJ mustang and maybe a Chowny SWB pro or other 32" scale bass as I'm curious about trying one of these as well now..

      Six string bass tuned E:e so like a FenderVI. Very nicely made, active electronics, string through, 30” scale. Lovely tone with strong fundamental from EMG pickups and three band EQ. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.

      Price drop, Was £875 now £840!!!!!!!!
      This bass has a great low action and the neck is smooth and fast and just had a fresh waxing with Warwick wax.
      Body of the bass has some mojo but has been given a good polish, a number of small dints here and there but still in good condition (see photos).
      Frets have near zero wear.
      Pickups are MEC in the neck and a Delano MM in the bridge, the two switches are one for the sims blue led's and the other is a 3 way switch is for the MM pickup when the switch is in the up position the bridge pick-up is humbucking and routed in series. When the switch is in the middle position the bridge pick-up is single coil and routed as humcanceling with the neck pick-up. When the switch is in the down position the bridge pick-up is humbucking and routed in parallel parallel, series, split i believe.
      Electronics: Seymour Duncan Basslines preamp. Push/Pull Volume/Pickup Pan Control (Part #M89252 -2 x 220K, 500K)* Treble Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K) Mid Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K) Bass Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K).
      By pulling on the volume knob you will activate the slap contour EQ curve on the Seymour Duncan Basslines preamp. This curve will boost the bass frequencies and the high fre-quencies, while slightly cutting the mid frequencies. Pulling the knob does not deactivate the active preamp. The Seymour Duncan preamp is considered  better than the more common MEC electronics.
      Sims LED's are fitted and are bright blue and really do go well with the colour of the bass.
      Body is swamp ash with a generous slab of flamed maple top. 
      Info from the Warwick serial number search:
      I :numb Serial Number: A-080914-01 Description:
      Corvette FNA, 4-string
      Ocean Blue Oil finish
      Swamp Ash / A Flamed Maple top body
      Ovangkol neck
      Gold hardware

      Selling my Alembic spoiler, in excellent condition. All the elements are original and work perfectly. It includes the famous Q filter, having a wide range of mid frequencies to play with. Three minor dents, visible in the photos, are the only imperfections it presents. Comes with padded case and skb protective armor. Slappers, jazzers and metalheads delight (and everything in between!).
